I could see it going either way... mercenary who doesn’t give a f*ck, or student and lover of the game who believes in the importance of it’s history and institutions. I do kinda err towards the latter... that feels on brand.The second hand story I have from an impeccable source (RD, formerly of these parts) is that Mourinho is very much the latter, in which he demonstrated himself to be an absolutely class in a football situation away from the bright lights. I'm sure I can tell the story if anyone cares, but it's basically related to the way he treated a lower league club who got drawn away at Chelsea in the Cup a number of years ago. Maybe he's changed since then, but hearing it has made me always have a soft spot for him.
